North American Travel and Tourism > NA Travel DestinationsNorth America is the third largest continent and features the Coastal Range and Rocky Mountains running down the west coast from Alaska in the Arctic north to Central America in the Equatorial south. The continent also includes the fairly flat Canadian Shield, the Great Plains of the central interior, the Appalachian Mountains in eastern USA, and the coastal plain running from New Jersey down the Atlantic coast and along the Gulf of Mexico. Three of its five Great Lakes are among the five largest lakes in the world.
The largest city in North America is Mexico City; other leading cities include New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Toronto. North America is served by an extensive network of international and domestic airlines as well as a well-maintained highway network. The Pan American Highway was designed to provide road access between North and South America, but this highway has not yet been completed through southeastern Panama. The unfinished portion of the road is known as the Darien Gap. Good online sources of North American news include CNN, The New York Times, and BBC's US and Canada News.
